You people at the Imperial Valley Press are so unaware about David Dhillon. I have known David Dhillon his entire life. I have never seen a politician or community leader produce more results than him.
As Imperial Valley College student body president in 1980-81, David delivered two major concerts (Tierra) never before seen at IVC and a sign and marquee on Aten Road which still stand today.
At Calexico and Central high schools, he was not only a beloved teacher, but did the extra things with anti-drug organizations that made a difference for kids and families.
At Catholic Charities, throughout the 1990s he contributed to make that organization the biggest and most successful non-profit in the Valley by expanding space as well as service offerings, but especially creating a food drive program unmatched that produced 40 tons of donated canned goods a year, all for our local poor. All this while never having a personnel or volunteer problem, as well as always balancing his budget. I should know. I was one of several volunteers very close to these programs.
